Mission: Automate everything automatable in the residential mortgage industry.
I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time (More than 3 years)
I get to work with great people that I enjoy being around
Free ice cream
Opportunities to volunteer & support the local community
Sometimes people can be too relaxed
QA engineers who are not good in technical are chosen to become managers , very bad move by recent QA leader
Lot of managers in QA without technical skills are asked to drive or lead the team
Engineers who are technical don't get motivated to work under such bosses if he/she just asks whether a given task is completed or not
Advice to Management
Changes in QA Org is not very well thought - especially the manager promotions to unfit people
But overall new QA Org has vision with new leader , but might fail in the execution because of poor decisions
I don't find any medium to talk about it, i would recommend QA leaders should open up a channel to give feedback. Not all the decisions taken by leaders are always correct, since the ground reality would be different and they should listen to the engineers
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ellie Mae (Pleasanton, CA (US)) in December 2012.
Ellie Mae Cares raised $3,000 for charity at our annual Bocce Ball Tournament at our headquarters in Pleasanton, CA. Congratulations to all 32 teams who competed and to team Pallino Connect for winning the coveted Bocce Ball Tournament Cup! http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQpI3
Our Pleasanton employees held an outstanding Car Show last week. Employees brought their cars to the show, and attendees voted on their favorites. Check out the photos of our amazing turnout and some of the most impressive rides!
